Green Beans with Toasted Pecans
Nutty green beans make the perfect side for whatever main dish is on the menu.
- 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
- 3/4 pound green beans, stem ends removed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pecans on a rimmed baking sheet; toast until fragrant, 6 to 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, set a steamer basket in a large saucepan. Fill with enough water to come just below basket; bring to a simmer. Place green beans in basket; cover, and steam until crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
Transfer green beans to a serving platter; drizzle with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with pecans.
